This is the one place to eat at least once in your life. Lots of good old American food. Especially breakfast, even at night. It's crowded at times but worth the wait. They don't make dinners like this anymore.

This might have been a very popular hang out in the 1970s, but now it is not that special. The menu is very limited, it is less than clean, and it is very crowded.

The new Hamburg Inn #2 is in the East side of Iowa City. Hamburg Inn #1 is downtown, and has served Presidents that were running for office. They now have the "Presidential Breakfast" for a reasonable price, and that gives a lot of good food....More

The Hamburg Inn is a diner. As long as you accept that premise the food is actually quite good. if you're looking for something more upscale you'll probably be disappointed. My wife really likes the all day breakfast. The hamburgers are good, not excellent... But...More
